Two outfit posts in a row and i'm wearing the same Kaylee Cho cape/jacket. What can I say, I love it and I find it so easy to style. It's very chic and extremely versatile and I love how it contrasted the neutral layers of this look. Probably way to cold these days to go out in shorts, bare legs and ballet flats but at the time of taking these photos, it was just right!
To continue my little love affair with shorts that I've been having recently, I decided to give this androgynous pair a romantic twist by wearing this old vintage-y style dress as a blouse. My ballet flats only seemed to compliment the feminine tones and I was perfectly fine with that, though I did add a little touch of quirk with my Illesteva sunnies.
Easy, light, classic and romantic is sometimes all I want and need in a summertime outfit! Thank you for reading my dears,

So here is one of my favourite buys for this winter, this amazing gilet by 2nd DAY. I bought it about a month ago and have been really looking forward to wearing it. I remember trying it on when I first unwrapped it from its My Wardrobe tissue paper and showing my mum with her then proceeding to say that I looked like a sheep in reply to that I said, well the chicest damn sheep you'll ever see!
I can't say that this outfit was styled around this jacket, it was more about trying to style these old summer shorts of mine with a more autumnal flair. Their colour is a great base to start with and their slight oversized fit called for another oversized piece, so I chose this navy sweater thats actually from the mens department in M&S it's quite old but it did the job. I also added a classic white shirt underneath, as I think a navy v-neck teamed with a white shirt is such a chic combination, that I never seem to tier of and I love nothing more then taking an edgier approach to a classic combo such as this. For my shoes I couldn't resist bringing out these old knee boots of mine that I bought from Topshop years ago, I remember I loved them so much that I bought them in a size to big, so now I always have to wear them with at least two pairs of socks. Ah but it's worth it!
I then added the gilet, it gives the look a whole different feel which is why I took photos of the outfit with and with out the gilet. It was just a little to chilly to wear the outfit with out a jacket and so that was that I gave into temptation and wore the amazing piece by 2nd Day. Wearing this created an undoubtable touch of 70's flair but with there still being a strong sense of minimal styling alongside such classic-chic pieces, made sure it was only an influence and not a running theme. Or at least that's how view it.
Well I hope you like this look. I am truly grateful for any comments I receive.
p.s sorry for the excessive amount of photos. It was just to hard narrowing it down this time, so I just went with it.
